    My idea in my head is I definitely want a capped black leather shoe. Used for city wear

    I know oxfords are the most classic however I do not found the lace area of the shoe to be attractive at all. http://36.media.tumblr.com/f8b2b23ae74faf9eb332ce0d2c3a092a/tumblr_ndr8o6MNcO1sj1nruo1_1280.jpg

    I already own a pair of loakes 1880 derbys

    Which Ive beat to death and were an impulse buy as I was looking at loakes oxfords moreso.

    I like the silhouette of the Loake churchills however do not want to go back to loake - the sole of my derbys has worn terribly however that is partly because i have beat them everyday wear

    I like how they are capped and the lace area looks sleek/refined/modern. Also how the shoe is narrow around the middle section (goes in and then out as opposed to being more one shape throughout )getting wider as opposed to a traditional toe cap oxford being more one shape throughout (http://blog.loakepolska.pl/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Buty-Loake-model-Aldwych-2-e1439996683153.jpg)

    Any recommendations for similar shoes to churchill loakes 1880? or in line with my description above.

    You don't mention price, so the first thing that comes to mind is Vass F last, which has a rounded narrow toe and nice contrast in width.
